> Court case for indemnity after G8 searches 2007
> On May 9 2007, a few weeks before the G8-summit in Heiligendamm, German police stormed around 40 houses and offices of people thought to be involved in organizing protest against the G8. The Federal Court of Justice (Bundesgerichtshof, BGH) later judged these searches to be illegal. But up till now the German authorities refuse to pay any indemnity to the victims of these searches. Therefore they are going to court again to demand these. The courtcase will be on May 20 in Hamburg.

> (SK) Conference From Theory to Practice: Creative Action Towards Social Change,
> Looking at the European political situation and its transformation in the past few years, one thing can be seen clearly. The years of the global financial crisis have been very helpful for nationalist, racist and far-right parties, groups and movements. (...) The aim of the conference is to form a platform for new ideas and strategies for the European antidiscrimination movement. In a time when far-right groups are more and more successful in recruiting new members and addressing a large part of the population, fresh strategies and ideas are needed.

When it comes to our divinely ordained rulers, even the most minimal pretence at neutrality and respect for due process has been dropped and the attitudes and motivations of law enforcement laid bare.

> New detention phone system to keep detainees under control
> A new phone system run by a private company will replace personal mobile phones in immigration detention centres, Corporate Watch can reveal. The trial at Tinsley House detention centre, near Gatwick airport, is run by Global Comms & Consulting Ltd (GCC), which specialises in secure telecommunications services to major government agencies and multinational companies. As a result, detainees will not be able to call free numbers and will pay significantly higher rates to call their family and solicitors. All calls will also be recorded, monitored and disrupted when necessary by the immigration authorities and/or the immigration prison’s management.

> Calais Video Breaking Headlines across France
> After initially breaking on Rue89 the French media Channel TF1 has just released a video composed of several clips from the work of CMS (Calais Migrants Solidarity ). The police are shown pepper-spraying, being violent, abusive and unprofessional. This video combines several already high profile clips including the police playing loud music whilst raiding Africa House at night and the PAF punching an activist holding a video camera. A CMS activist talks to a radio interviewer about working on the ground in Calais and the use of video cameras in escalating violence towards migrants. A police spokesperson also attempts to claim that the police are highly professional whilst a clip of them playing football during a squat raid runs in the background.

> (NL) Fingerprints database decreases security
> A political debate is enrolling in the Netherlands about the desirability and the feasibility of the creation of a database with the fingerprints of every person living in the Netherlands. This is partly practice in the Netherlands. Since September 2009 fingerprints - that everybody who applies for a new passport or ID is obliged to give - are being stored in a decentralised database. The plan is to create a centralised database that can also be used by different law enforcement institutions. But a majority in parliament and all privacy watchdogs are not in favor of this plan. Jaap-Henk Hoekman (senior scientist at TNO and an associate professor in security and applied cryptography at the Radboud University Nijmegen) thinks such a database will make the passport less secure, instead of more.

> German plan to sensor internet fails
> The much criticised Projekt Internetsperren has been stopped by the German Government. Last year the Zugangserschwerungsgesetz-law came into power, forcing internet providers to block access to websites worldwide on demand of the state (with the use of a secret blacklist) on the accusation they would contain child pornography. The government now has pulled back the law, after the organisation ak zensur, representing four different internet users went to court against it.
